Visiting the Friendship Fountain should be on the list of things to do in Jacksonville. It's beautifully located on the St. Johns River, across from the Jacksonville Landing with a view both east and west that is absolutely stunning when the sun is either coming up or going down. It also has a perfect view of the Main Street Bridge... More

Amazing sparkling fountain surrounded by several bridges, the MOSH museum, the river, and the Jax skyline. Ideal for a romantic moment, photo shoot, daytime friends outing, family trip or solo outing.

Since they remodeled the park a couple of years ago, it's a very nice place to see downtown Jacksonville and the St. Johns River. The down side is, parking is terrible, and there are no public restrooms. The marina has restrooms, but they are locked after dark.

This is soooooo underrated, we can't believe nobody told us about this place! We found the fountain by mistake - whilst waiting for the MOSH museum to open. It's beautiful with lots of history and great for pictures - can only imagine what a sight it is at night. Nothing like this in England. Awesome - a must see in... More

This was our first stop on a road trip to Jersey. I read the reviews before going and thought it would a good place to stop. It was ok. It's a fountain, by the water, behind a museum. I was expecting a nicer setting. Maybe it's better at night when the lights are on.

I used to love going to this fountain to take pictures. It's beautiful anytime of the day: During the day, if it's sunny with that beautiful blue sky. Or at night when it becomes very colorful. I went once on Christmas and they had music and the water was "dancing" and changing colors according to the song. Amazing! The view... More

When I saw a video from a friend, it looked like a small fountain. However, when I saw it last week, it was the largest fountain I've seen, and it was just wonderful to sit by to relax. The colors change, there are several spouts for fountains, there is covered and uncovered seating, and you can lean right up against... More

I made a point to walk across the Main St bridge to go visit the Friendship Fountain because I read reviews that it was stunning. It was a nice fountain but there wasn't anything special about it and it wasn't all that large. My recommendation was don't make a special trip just for it, but enjoy it from the northside... More

Came down to Jacksonville with some friends and we stopped by the Friendship Fountain and strolled around a bit. Lovely fountain colors at night and a great place to sit, talk and enjoy some time with friends. The view of the river and bridges surrounding the area was also a plus!
